Don't worry, we all do :)

message 3: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) With Gin on this one. Don't worry though: We'll all get there! :)

message 4: by [deleted user] (new)

Yes, we are going to provide reading support and encouragement, group family style.

Plus me and Z are going to have small group buddy reads and small challenges to help you along the way.

You are stuck with us for life :) In a very good way!

message 5: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Lol! We don't leave people very easily do we, Lyss? Haha But I think I will go set up the Buddy Reads and Challenges...

message 6: by Cara (new)

Cara | 26 comments Thanks guys:) I can feel the support! I guess it shouldn't be too bad since it is a lifetime goal and not such a looming deadline in the way like reading a 100 books in a year. Man that one isn't going to well but trying is what counts I guess.

message 7: by [deleted user] (new)

Thanks, me and Z always push each other and we are always right on each others heels. Time for us to spread the support. :)

I know about Deadline. I did my 12 books for the 144 books a year in Jan but failed each month after that. Geez. Doesn't make you feel too good.

Hopefully, this group can keep your spirits up and we can have great conversations as well.

Happy Reading :)

message 8: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Yes, that is exactly what counts. I know how you feel about deadlines. I don't think I will reach my goal of 144 books, but I'm steadily trying. :)

message 9: by [deleted user] (new)

Trying, it really helps when you find a row of good books!

message 10: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Yes, I think so too. Sometimes I wish my dad would just let me buy every book in BAM (books a million) so that (1) he wouldn't have to take me so much and (2) so that I would have a continous line of books I wanted to reread.

message 11: by Heather (new)

Heather (nickyblue7) | 486 comments i love just having a line of books to read and as soon as you finish one book you can grab another one, in fact i got a good line of them right now :D

message 12: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Lol, mine aren't in an actual line, but they're written down on paper in the order I want to read them. I have a few that I got at Xmas that still haven't been read :)

message 13: by Angela (new)

Angela B | 400 comments I have a stack of books that I need to read but I don't put them in order I rarely choose what to read until I'm done with the book I am currently reading

message 14: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Sometimes that's how it works for me. I only do that for each month because it helps me with Challenges, like the one we have for June.

message 15: by Angela (new)

Angela B | 400 comments Ya that might help me with challenges too other then the fact that I have 6 library books out and they all have to be returned at a certain time so those have to go first, I'm not use to having library books

message 16: by [deleted user] (new)

Sometimes I choose while I'm reading a book. Because if that book is boring I'll grab another book and read that up to break up the boring book. Or if the book is good I'll grab a different book to slow down the goodness of a book. Sometimes you just don't want the pages to end!

It also depends on what I got from the library and if it is due!

message 17: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) I would love to go the library sometime soon. But mom can't drive. HAve to wait for the OK from the doctor. :( This is depressing, but I shouldn't be complaining cuz I have like 11 or 12 books that I still haven't read...

message 18: by [deleted user] (new)

Soon :)

message 19: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Thanks Lyss. You always know exactly what to say at exactly the right time. ;)

Cara | 26 comments Thanks for the faith in me guys! I'll probably be like Zakiya this time around though because I have less time to read this month. Bummer.

message 37: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Don't feel bad! I probably will be not so good again this month because of dance practice -- again :/ . Guess we can stop each other from drowning :).
